What to do in Bangkok

Did you know Bangkok is the most visited city in the world? Bangkok is a bustling city that can seem too intimidating to navigate and explore at first; it’s made up of several regions, all with their own individualities. However, with a little research and knowledge of the city, it’s a charming place with many local amenities. Here were my favourite things to do in Bangkok.

Southeast Asia Packing List

Hey everyone! If you’re reading this when it’s first publicized, you’re seeing it while Ian and I are on our flight to Bangkok – woohoo!

We decided to go with backpacks instead of checked luggage this time, after AirCanada lost our luggage on our last trip to Portugal. However, seeing as we’ll be away for over a month this time around, packing everything I needed into a 40L travel bag was quite a challenge. Let me tell you what I brought, to ease your time should it come around.

Southeast Asia – One Month Packing List

1for1 Pizza

Hey guys! I’m here today to talk to you about some of my favourite Ottawa comfort food.

One of the biggest hurdles to transitioning to a vegan diet is the shift in the kinds of dishes you can eat – sometimes, some of your favourite comfort foods disappear from most menus. Chicken fingers? Nope. Soup? Usually not. Pizza? Definitely not – well, most of the time, unless you want to eat it without cheese. But who does, really?

Portugal – the guide to Lisbon & Cascais

Welcome to the very last Portugal post! It’s been very fun and I’m sad that it’s ending, but I’m glad that the complete guide for our trip is now up!

So for our last few days in Portugal, we flew back to Lisbon and spent three nights there. Once we landed, we took the metro to our AirBNB, and let me just say, Lisbon’s public transport system is wonderful! I’ll be talking about it more later.

Portugal – The guide to Madeira!

Our second to last stay in Portugal was on the beautiful island of Madeira. Madeira is off the southern coast of Portugal, so you have to fly there. For that reason, we almost didn’t go – but Ian did some research and thought it looked amazing, so we did. And I’m sooo glad we did; Madeira was definitely my favourite part of the trip. Honestly, it’s a fairy tale tropical island. We stayed there for four days, but I wish we could have stayed a lot longer.
